Larry Friedlander has been a professor of English Literature and Theater
at Stanford University since 1965, with a specialty in Shakespeare and
performance. In May 1997, Friedlander was appointed Co-Director of the
newly established Stanford Learning Lab.
In the early 1980's he began working in multimedia design and applications
starting with the Shakespeare Project, a pioneering investigation
of the application of new technologies for education in the arts and
the humanities. In 1990 Friedlander formed the Interactive Shakespeare
Group with professors at MIT to develop tools for the study and presentation
of Shakespeare and to establish an interactive electronic archive
to be placed in the Folger Library and other institutions. Friedlander
has also developed numerous other educational applications, including
the TheaterGame, an animation program for staging plays, and Paris/Theatre,
a program for the historical study of French Theater.
Professor Friedlander has worked in major research laboratories
on a wide variety of projects. At the Apple Multimedia Lab, he developed
an innovative set of designs for the Globe Theater Museum in London.
At the MIT Media Lab, he collaborated on a computer-enhanced theater
space and narrative piece called the Wheel of Life, which has become
a model for augmented interactive spaces. At the Mitsubishi Electronic
Research Laboratory in Cambridge, Friedlander worked on long-distance,
virtual, collaborative spaces.
Professor Friedlander has been heavily involved in museum design
and planning, including advising the Museum of Scotland, a new national
museum due to open in Edinburgh in 1999, on its plans for technology
and design, and helping the University of Art and Design in Helsinki
establish a department of interactive museum design, He was an Osher
Fellow at the San Francisco Exploratorium, has done work with numerous
other institutions and has recently co-organized a symposium on Museums
and Technology for the SF Museum of Modern Art. Friedlander has lectured
and written widely in these fields.
